Flamenco Dancer in Seville, Spain

Since flamenco originated in Andalusia during the 18th century, it has become a music and dance custom in southern Spain. While the flamenco guitar (toque) plays a song (cante), it is accompanied by a dance (baile) characterized by fluid yet dramatic hand waving and feet stomping of a single dancer. This woman wearing a traditional, red dress with a frilly train was a street performer. There are several venues in Seville offering staged productions. One of the best is Casa del Flamenco.
